Shane,

I personally didn't do the panel or circuit breaker box wiring on any of these, but I had an electrician friend of mine do that, but all of the other work was done by me, he told me what to get and I buried the wires and mounted the panel and outlets, I also didn't weld up the trailer just designed it the way I wanted it, it was originally a wrecked john boat trailer that I got for free.

We used the circuit breaker box in the generator compartment for the 50AMP BUDDY PLUG on the 'Bird, mainly because of ease of wiring and not having to run a new wire up through the coach and to the breaker box in the rear bath closet, so the wiring you suggest sounds right to me, as that would be similar to using one side of the circuit breaker panel on the inside of your 'Bird correct?

Here is a good item on the forum to read up about wiring RV Electric Service, Connections and Basic Information
